My Thoughts on The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Usually, after seeing one of the Narnia movies in the theater, I hasten to write my own thoughts and impressions before reading other people’s opinions and other people’s movie reviews. I do this to make sure that I write exactly what I personally think without influence from anyone else. Unfortunately, for The Voyage of the…

Aslan: A Recurring Theme

I wish I could take credit for noticing this recurring theme, but all credit goes to Paul F. Ford, author of Companion to Narnia. He noticed that a similar theme was used when Aslan was first introduced and when Aslan was last mentioned in the Chronicles of Narnia. (I also wish I could take credit…

Narnia: Explaining the Book Titles

The Chronicles of Narnia is a collection of 7 novels written by C S Lewis, which tells the story of various events that happened in the fictional land of Narnia and beyond. For those who have no idea what the books are about or don’t exactly get the reason behind the titles, here’s a brief…

Narnia Fan Fiction: Letters to Polly (Part 2)

Here’s my second attempt at Narnian fan fiction. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go on with this, given that Swanwhite already did something quite similar before. However, I noticed that I have a bad habit of not finishing things that I’ve begun, so I decided to finish this off so that I can…

Narnia Fan Fiction: Letters to Polly (Part 1)

How did Professor Kirke feel when he first heard that Lucy has been to Narnia? Here’s a glimpse through his letter to his old friend. By the way, this is my first attempt at fan fiction of any kind, so any suggestions will be most welcome. You can find part 2 here. My dear friend…

Narnia: Quotes from The Magician’s Nephew (Part 1)

Here are my favorite quotes from chapters 1-5 of The Magician’s Nephew. Quotes from CHAPTER 1 – THE WRONG DOOR “It’s all rot to say a house would be empty all those years unless there was some mystery.” “Daddy thought it must be the drains,” said Polly. “Pooh! Grown-ups are always thinking of uninteresting explanations,” said Digory….

On the BBC’s Prince Caspian and Dawn Treader

Like I mentioned in my previous entry, I’ve had the complete VCD collection of the BBC adaptation of The Chronicles of Narnia for 3 years now but I have only attempted to watch it once. I gave up after a few minutes because I was creeped out by the talking beasts – which were actually people wearing…

Practical People in Narnia

In The Chronicles of Narnia, a total of seven people were described as being practical, and three of them were called practical in a rather negative way. JADIS The children were now afraid that Jadis would have something to say to them about what had happened in the wood. As it turned out, however, she never mentioned…

Double Lucy Quotes

I was listening to the audiobook of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe today, and noticed that Lucy had two double quotes in LWW – meaning, she said a word twice (I didn’t count quotes like “Aslan, Aslan”). I also remember one double quote in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and since I…

The Lamb in the Last Battle

In The Last Battle, there is an important scene in Chapter 3 where the animals were gathered at the stable. They have just heard the frightening news from Shift (the Ape) who told them that “Aslan” had sold all the Talking Beasts of Narnia to slavery. Of course, if you know the entire story, the…

Like Edmund

Among the four Pevensies, I’ve always liked Edmund the most because it is very easy to relate to his story. He started out rough, but was changed forever after Aslan saved his life and showed him mercy. While listening to the Harper-Collins audiobook of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe this morning, I noticed…

A Knight’s Tale from Archenland

This is my first feeble attempt at Narnian poetry, and I wrote this while driving to the office this morning. I guess sometimes traffic is a good thing. Here is my story, said a knight with a snort, About what once happened in King Lune’s court. From out of the blue came two hundred horses…
